In fact, according to the Financial Times, the electric-car company can’t keep pace with demand. It all started earlier this summer when CEO Elon Musk came up with the idea to poke fun of those betting against the stock (short sellers) by offering up red satin Tesla-branded “short shorts” online.
Fast forward five months and some Musk loyalists still haven’t received their saucy little outfits. One disappointed customer aired his frustration to the FT, saying that “Tesla can’t even deliver a pair of shorts in over five months. What did they do with all that money?”
Others took to Twitter TWTR, -0.13% to vent:
???? Waiting for Tesla to determine I am cool enough to take delivery on my Tesla Short Shorts and Tesla Tequila. LET’S GO! ???? pic.twitter.com/DTUH1QFxQ4— Bradford (@bradsferguson) December 4, 2020
Then again, there were also plenty of satisfied customers:
Meanwhile, the targets of Musk’s “short shorts” mockery have had a brutal year, as Tesla shares have ridden a stock split and inclusion in the S&P 500 SPX, +0.88% to a six-fold return and a $568-billion valuation. S3 Partners reported that the shorts have lost $35 billion on their Tesla positions so far this year, including $8.5 billion in November alone.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 68.8842. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 73.28. This is where it usually tops. The RSI usually forms tops and bottoms before the underlying security. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 12 period(s) ago.
